Altadena resident, Charles Thomas, a product of an African American father and a Japanese mother grew up on the mean streets of East L A and Pasadena, an ex-gang member; He turned his life around through his experiences with Outward Bound Adventures (OBA). OBA is an environmental, educational youth organization that provides meaningful nature-based education that promotes positive self-development, environmental responsibility, and outdoor career exposure for at-risk and urban youth. With two BA's and a Master’s degree, he spent 16 years as the executive director of OBA. Charles will be the guest speaker for the Redlands Conservancy on October 10th at 5:30 pm. He will be discussing the solution to getting inner-city and under-served youth of color into the outdoors and why they don't connect to the land. We hope you will attend this event and bring others.
